. two new things. one is foreign policy magazine has a new article out. it's quite a long article. but there is some things that are absolutely stunning, that this happened on 9/11, and the fbi at some point was sent in to investigate. and then on october 26, 6 weeks later, foreign policy magazine went to the consulate, went to the cia annex. they found a draft of two letters. and letters that they have no idea thisf they were ever, ever sent anywhere. but a draft of two letters that the fbi never picked up when they were there. and two draft, talk about this fact that that day, they saw some member of the bolivian police force across the street in the upstairs, taking pictures inside the compound and they were worried and concerned. why that evidence was not seized by the fbi, i don't know. another thing that happened, david ignatius of the washington post, met with the cia. the cia gave them a timeline as to what happened. this is what is new for me. number 1, it appears that the last two who were killed were not killed until about 5:00 hirt in the morning, which fwaifs another
that is not a serious discussion -- foreign policy, is foreign policy an issue at all in this election? >> i don't think it has been. i think president obama wants foreign policy to be a slogan. i got bin laden, let's move on. and really does not want to drill into the various areas around the world. and governor romney clearly from the other night does not want foreign policy to be much of an issue. he had plenty of opportunity to go after obama and chose not to do so. he chose to rise above begala -- above at all and can indicate that he can do this, that he has the knowledge and the demeanor to be able to be commander-in- chief. i think governor romney want this to be about the economy. every chance he got in the debate he brought it back to the economy. he brought it back to president obama's record. president obama is looking at the mess around the world and does not want to talk about that. he wants to talk about getting bin laden. as a result, a foreign-policy has taken a back seat. can the president have an impact on the fiscal situation? yes, but he is the sole player, by and large, on national
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
during the foreign policy debate. by the way, despite that interview with mr. obama, the factor at 8:00 last night beat the nbc program rock center in total audience, which is kind of amazing. getting back to libya. my view is this: muslim terrorists were tracking ambassador stevens. they had heavy weapons at the ready. and saw an opening to attack in benghazi. there is nothing spontaneous about that. the cia was caught napping, then froze when all hell broke loose. apparently not understanding rescue options or what was at stake. when the damage and death became fully known, the obama administration tried to manage it, rather than report it. and so chaos developed. people like u.n. ambassador susan rice, as well as white house spokesperson jay carney did not assess the situation correctly to the public. talking points believes carney and rice were told by the public what to say but by whom? that is the question that brian williams should have asked. because president obama has to know the answer to that it is unconceivable that he doesn't. let me repeat. if you ask president obama
to undermine the president's advantage on foreign-policy. but i'm not sure there's much there. i'm not fully versed in everything about benghazi and the attack surrounding it, but it does seem like there's a lot of coverage out there from some of the largest news organizations in america. host: sandy is the october surprise. we'll see how this shakes out. ben in tennessee, independent caller. caller: please don't cut me off. i would like to say the bailouts of gm and chrysler benefited nascar, because they took all the money that the taxpayers gave them and put it back into nascar, because there were still sponsoring it and sponsoring events. also, this president does not carry ou -- does not care about the middle class. we have only had one rates on our social security. my mother got a $30 raise. it's going on four years now. he gets back in, we will not get another one. the only reason he gave this one was because of the election. host: reid wilson? guest: we actually put up an interesting post last week on the hot line by two republicans who took a look at consumer habits, how much they l
debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate was about being the commander in chief and being able to lead, and i think that's what we'll see president obama try to portrait over the next 48 hours, and i think governor romney is going to try to do that as well. >> all right. we'll be watching closely. thank you, mark. good to see you. >>> live pictures from atlantic city, new jersey, where hurricane sandy is pounding the coast. the eye of the storm expected to make landfall there between 8:00 and midnight eastern tonight. as we mentioned, president obama, he is cancelling campaign events to stand by those being hit by this beast of a storm. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. >> we'll hear the president live later in the hour about 20 minutes or so is when he is scheduled to speak from the white house. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been
: sure. >> he also made an attempt at the same type of undecided voters. he tried to use foreign policy as his issue. did not work as well. his is more of an attack on mitt romney. let's take a look. >> i'm barak obama and i approve this message. >> wreckless, amateurish. that's when news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, the "new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> so negative. so negative. that's not what voters want to hear. the amazing thin is that barak obama attacks mitt romney on of all things, libya? the obama campaign has been the most negative campaign over the last three weeks of any campaign in modern history. compare and contrast that with 2008 when he was the most positive. it's one of the reasons why his favorability ratings have go
's foreign policy. he said there's no obama doctrine that i know of. i don't know that anybody has enunciated a world view the way that henriy kissen jer did in hs day or even james baker. there's no great love there for the president of the united states. but clearly he has endorsed him. >> yes. and also he focused on climate change which i thought was interesting. >> right. >> it comes after this huge storm and there's a big fight going on right now. and the scientists are out there saying, listen, this is climate change these sort of huge storms we haven't seen the likes of before. this is the result of climate change. and this is clearly a major who believes that his city was hard hit as a result of climate change. and so, you know, again not surprising the timing is sort of interesting to me. but it does fit in with what's been going on in new york and that he spent so much time talking about climate change. and that was what he was actually criticizing mitt romney for was romney's -- what he sees as romney's flip-flop on things like coarbon emissions. >> obviously critically important i
